The publication Competitive Agricultural Systems and Enterprises (CASE): a grassroots approach to agribusiness development in Sub-Saharan Africa is available for purchase. One of the most successful methods IFDC has used in Africa to increase the number of farmers moving from subsistence to commercial agriculture is the CASE solution. CASE is based on agribusiness cluster formation, value chain development and strengthening the abilities of public and private institutions to enable agribusiness and trade.
The book introduces CASE, outlines its implementation and highlights examples of agribusiness development in West Africa. The publication was developed in collaboration with the International Centre for development oriented Research in Agriculture (ICRA) and the Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation (CTA).
